Licensing of Custom IDE Based On IntelliJ



We're currently in the final stages of building a custom IDE based on the IntelliJ platform and would like to understand more about the licensing of such a product. We see that there is a section of the platform plugin documentation based on this, however it's greyed out and inaccessible.

Is there any estimation on when this information will be released? And in the meantime, if there is any information elsewhere about releasing a custom IDE, I would be very grateful if you could point me to it.

Many thanks,


Hello Alex, 

Thanks for brining this up! 

Yeah, the section in our documentation is not ready yet but please check this issue out (where you might find some useful links). Unfortunately, I cannot provide any ETA at the moment, but I'll check on that at the next meeting with my team and will try to get for you any rough estimations at least. 


Hello Alex, please feel free to ping me privately as I'd like to learn more about your IDE or on Platform Slack
